I’m in Vermont, on vacation, staying at my sister’s place. I’ve been seeing some old friends but also meeting up with a lot of my family (my parents, my aunt and uncle, and my cousins) that are staying here as well. We’re in the middle of nowhere so that means a lot of site seeing, hiking, chatting, and good food. What else do you really need? Well actually, my girlfriend being here would be really nice but sometimes you can’t have it all.
We took a nice hike at Little River Reservoir yesterday and took the historic loop trail which was quite enjoyable. On the trail there was a very old building from I believe the late 1800’s (which I wish I had taken a picture of), some very old cemeteries that are from the early 1800’s, and some plots of old farms with a few remains of old farmhouses. Below is a few shots (again with the iphone pictures) of some sites from the hike.
Above is an old headstone from a cemetery that dates back to early 1860. This guy’s name is Zeruah, I believe. This was from the upper cemetery where most of the people buried where 40 to 50 years old.
The above picture is a gravestone from 1908. This picture was from the lower cemetery of our history loop that we hiked. This woman lived to be 100 years old. Pretty impressive for back then. The other people in the same cemetery also lived long lives ie. 70 – 80 years old.
